Comparison of NN1250 With Insulin Glargine in Subjects With Type 2 Diabetes
A 26-week Randomised, Confirmatory, Controlled, Open Label, Multicentre, Multinational Treat-to-target Trial Comparing the Efficacy and Safety of SIBA 200 U/ml Three Times Weekly Injected in the Evening and Insulin Glargine Once Daily in a Population of Insulin naïve Subjects With Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus Currently Treated With OADs Qualifying for Intensified Treatment (BEGIN™: EASY™)

This trial is conducted in Europe and North America. The aim of this clinical trial is to compare NN1250 (insulin degludec (IDeg)), a soluble insulin basal analogue (SIBA), with insulin glargine (IGlar), as add-on to subject's ongoing treatment with metformin and/or DPP-4 (dipeptyl peptidase 4) inhibitors, in patients with type 2 diabetes being treated with oral anti-diabetic drugs (OADs).
